ﬁg-2 collaborates with Block Universe, the ﬁrst performance festival in London that brings together a new wave of cutting edge performance art at the cross-section of visual art, dance and music, activating major institutions and venues throughout London between 8 and 14 June. Together they join forces in a new commission by sculptor Eva Rothschild and choreographer Joe Moran. Navigating the meeting points and tensions between their sculptural and choreographic concerns, Rothschild and Moran explore the shared and conflicting materiality of the body and the sculptural object. ‘A Setup’ merges two practices by bringing existing ﬁlm and performance works into relationship with new sculpture taking place at ICA Studio and ICA Theatre: while Rothschild’s ﬁlm ‘Boys and Sculpture’ (2012) and Moran’s ‘In Land’ (2008) are shown in the ICA Studio with benches by Rothschild, Moran’s durational performance installation, ‘Singular’ (2011) will be performed in the ICA Theatre with sculptures made for the space by Rothschild that visitors can attend during the aforementioned times. Please book your tickets here.
